    So this is Walmart in Canada, but looks like 8-bit modern Mario and Dr Mario are exclusive to that store

    Typically though our "Walmart exclusive" is America's "Target exclusive". So the modern Mario could also potentially be that.

    fucking hell. I hate Walmart. I haven't bought something from Walmart in over 10 years.

    Hooray! Thanks to sporadic restocks over the past few months that shockingly took hours instead of seconds to vanish, I'm freakin' 4 for 4 with the Fire Emblem set. At the very least I'm set for the new game. Just gotta either get a N3DS or one of those adapters though...

    The situation has gotten marginally better. There have been shockingly quite a few restocks, at least in Canada. Although you can definitely see the retail wave it follows. First EB gets Ike/Falcon/Villager, then a few days later Walmart gets the same list, then BB, and so on. It's still very much a case of "right place at the right time". Really, the only difference is that you actually have time to blink if you're in that moment. Ike actually stayed up on BB for a few hours, which is the reason I got him.

    I mentioned to my wife that I finally had the Amiibo I needed, now I just had to save up for the new game. She replied, "You know for the price of two amiibo you could've just bought the game."

    Did you tell her that the first rule of amiibo collecting is she doesn't remind you how much you've spent on amiibo collecting?

    Never look at your collection and try to do the math. It just leads to despair.

    I'll be in Orlando that weekend with my family.

    I could drive to a local Toys R Us there, but not sure if I'd want to chance fighting an Orlando crowd. :P

    Honestly there will probably be a ton of Bowser Jr.s if that's all you need. Store exclusives were super plentiful last two waves. If you go near open you'll probably be fine.

    I did the store lineup thing for Dark Pit, but I'm probably gonna pass this time around and just hope for the best. I'm fine buying one figure, but since the 9/11 wave is going to have four or five I dunno if I want to commit to that many at a time.

    I might mosey over to TRU sometime that evening if the internet says most stores had tons. Otherwise I'll just buy the Japanese version off of Amazon with the 5 dollar convenience fee.

    Speaking of MM, off topic, but do all the physical versions of that game come with the booklet?

    Edit: Nevermind. I looked it up. They do. Yay!

    All physical copies come with the book. All digital copies can request to be mailed a free copy of the book. And the thing will be put online for free via pdf.

    They've covered every angle. It's pretty cool.

    Probably every costume in the game. Some of those are freaking awesome. And it looks like there are already costumes for Mewtwo, Lucas and Chibi-robo too. AND yes, the Yarn Yoshis have unique costumes INCLUDING Mega Yarn Yoshi!

    Also.... interesting there are costumes for all Star Fox members.....

    They even randomly have Nikki from Swapnote in there :P

    Edit: Also random touch, Dark Pit floats instead of walks :D

    Must have. There were a few I didn't know about in there.

    I just watched a themed level where the guy basically says what one of the mushrooms was, but avoids it. Kind of got the vibe it was a hush hush thing.

    Yeah a lot of the videos I saw they said they were specifically not allowed to show most of the costumes. It was a weird Nintendo thing - I guess so they aren't all spoiled? *shrug*

    Not every costume maps to an amiibo. Some are just costumes you unlock through playing.

    Also, they wouldn't let the press show announced amiibo costumes, like, I know Diddy was one they couldn't show.

    Yeah I remember watching a video about a Wind Waker themed stage and the guy who made it (the video and the stage) going "Here's Tingle Tower. Oh look, that block at the top of Tingle Tower had a Mystery Mushroom in it, I wonder who you would transform into if you got that mushroom from Tingle Tower." making it pretty obvious they were embargoed on revealing costumes.

    Well, Falco got pushed back to the release of the new Starfox, so maybe it's just him and Fox.
